Miu Miu Ad Banned in the UK

The UK's Advertising Standards Agency is really going on in on fashion campaigns this month. A fortnight ago they pulled Dakota Fanning's campaign for Marc Jacobs' fragrance, Oh Lola!, and now Miu Miu are in the hot seat for this shot of Hailee Steinfeld sitting on the train track.
The ASA have criticized the brand as "“irresponsible because it depicted a child in an unsafe location,” according to the Telegraph. Prada have since released a statement arguing that the concerns are unwarranted because she “could have easily moved from where she was sitting because she was not restrained in any way.”
